Pause Breathe Smile is the flagship social responsibility programme for Southern Cross, making a positive difference to the mind health of Kiwi kids.


Southern Cross’ involvement makes it possible for Pause Breathe Smile to be made available free of charge to any primary or intermediate school in the country.

Priority is given to whole-school training.  We can train your Kāhui Ako by arrangement.  If your school has preferred teacher only day dates for the professional development workshop please include those in your message

Not a teacher from a primary or intermediate school? The Pause Breathe Smile programme is designed for Year 0-8 learners. ECE and High School teachers or those who might wish to deliver Pause Breathe Smile as an independent or external facilitator are currently not able to train in Pause Breathe Smile. You are still welcome to join our newsletter database for updates.
